Gumpus Cemetery Inscriptions

In 1976 members of the Pelham Historical Society, assisted by High School students, copied and typed up all of the gravestone information from the Gumpus Cemetery. This work is particularly interesting because it contains all of the epitaphs. While there is no index associated with this work, the gravestones are list in sequentially as they were found on the ground.  Therefore, the 1906 Silas Coburn index will work for most of the gravestones recorded in 1976.
